New feedback system could allow greater control over fusion plasma -- ScienceDaily

Like a potter shaping clay as it spins on a wheel, physicists use magnetic fields and powerful particle beams to control and shape the plasma as it twists and turns through a fusion device. Now a physicist has created a new system that will let scientists control the energy and rotation of plasma in real time in a doughnut-shaped machine known as a tokamak. "When designing fusion machines, it's becoming more and more important to use control systems and modeling techniques taken from the worl...
